Program Outline:

Focusing on developing English and Mandarin learning abilities and fostering self-confidence and clarity of speech in children, while promoting free expressions of their imagination and creativity. Children will learn a variety of speech and drama skills through fun, creative and engaging activities.

Highlight:

Dramatization – Children perform a play or story which includes dialogue, role-play and characterization in both languages.

Mime & Movement – Children act using only gesture and bodily movement, they have to express themselves solely by using their body.

Role-play – Children assume a person or character’s role and mannerisms.

Public Speaking – Children stand in front of an audience to speak on any topic formally or informally, this includes expressing personal opinions individually, regardless of whether the child stands in front of the class or not.

Rhyme/Poetry Recitation – Children speak or chant a verse individually or in groups in both languages.

Reading Aloud – Children present a poem or narrative piece in front of an audience in both languages. This performance teaches children to read a text and incorporate vocal and facial expressions.
